    Yes I realize Italy and Spain have universal healthcare(at least I think they do) and they are dropping like flies in spite of it
    interesting take. at the very least, i think all of this will lead to a big rise in populists/populism - especially when the realization of the economic fallout sets in when life starts returning to 'normal'. trump and sanders were only the beginning of it all. if those two are in any way a result of what transpired in 2008 and of course today's status quo in general, the state of our country a year or two from now is going to have a lot of people voting against it (the status quo).

    Raise taxes to Canada's level and you'll have free healthcare.

    China has reported 3,299 coronavirus-related deaths, with most taking place in Wuhan, the epicenter of the global pandemic. But one funeral home received two shipments of 5,000 urns over the course of two days, according to the Chinese media outlet Caixin.

    That doesn't even include those thousands buried.

    The families of those who succumbed to the virus in the central Chinese city, where the disease first emerged in December, were allowed to pick up their cremated ashes at eight local funeral homes starting this week. As they did, photos circulated on Chinese social media of thousands of urns being ferried in.

    Outside one funeral home, trucks shipped in about 2,500 urns on both Wednesday and Thursday, according to Chinese media outlet Caixin. Another picture published by Caixin showed 3,500 urns stacked on the ground inside. It’s unclear how many of the urns had been filled.

    People who answered the phone at six of the eight funeral homes in Wuhan said they either did not have data on how many urns were waiting to be collected, or were not authorized to disclose the numbers. Calls were not answered at the other two.

    New york city would need to separate the positive testers from the rest and disinfect the buildings.

    New York ALONE today has more deaths in a single day than a typical flu season day for the entire US, what a terrible comparison. These numbers are just the beginning, NY death peak is closer to 1k a day.
